Statistics on budgeted revenue expenditure and financing by Welsh authorities include data for police, fire and national park authorities, for 2011-12. The latest release updates the statistics previously released on 10 June 2010.
The key points from the latest release are:

- County and county borough councils reported increases of 1.3%(r) or £89 million(r) in their gross revenue expenditure whilst police authorities reported average decreases of 3.3%. Fire authorities remain unchanged whilst national park authorities reported an average decrease of 1.5%.
- Education services accounted for 34% of the total budgeted expenditure and social services 19%. These two services account for over half of the overall expenditure.

The new data affects 2010-11 budgets only and the 2011-12 data remains unaffected. Where possible, year on year comparisons have been made using the new data.
